Hidden Gem With A Water View

Out of the way place, unless you're going to the harbor, you're not going to happen to pass by it, especially since it's tucked inside of the Inn at Oyster Point. Been going here for over 15 years, before it was called Dominic's. For an appetizer, we usually go with the calamari fritti, good... read more

We ate here because we were staying in the hotel and the menu looked promising. Good--salad and chowder. Fair--Lamb, fish combo entree. The lamb was hard to eat off the bone, was a little gamey. The fish was unimaginative. Poor---Service. One waiter was crackerjack but the other couldn't complete any tasks without assistance. It is a small restaurant/bar combo and... More

Was here for the Mother's Day brunch. The foyer was quaint and the view gorgeous. Waited ten minutes for a hostess and then waited another 15 min for our reserved table. The selection on the menu sounded wonderful. The place was packed, service staff was overwhelmed. Was told several times that our mimosas would be brought to us... That was... More

This restaurant is located in a waterfront hotel. The dining room is fairly small and the vibe is kinda sterile, it has a definite manufactured home feel. Service was OK. The food was uninspired but edible. Awesome view! If only the ambiance and food matched the view.

Well I have to say the was great decision on our part. The food was excellent I had a chicken marsela and my... More

Ok, so this is an interesting place. It's a restaurant in an "Inn" right on the water. The restaurant is squeezed into the same small area as the bar, with a mixture of high tops and seated tables. The view is nice, overlooking the harbor and water. My food was all above average: from the salad to the seafood entree.... More

We eat here occasionally in the hope it will improve but the opportunity to make a great restaurant in a great location is never taken. Service is slow but cheerful and the cooking seems to involve moving frozen food into the microwave then onto the plate. It's consistently disappointing.

If you are willing to drive closer to the city you can find much better options for the price. The restaurant was clean and quaint but the service and food quality was just ok. Sat at the bar to eat since I was alone, the new bartender in training didn't appear to be very comfortable speaking to patrons or his... More

We were welcomed into the restaurant by Richard the general manager, and our most excellent server was Lulu. It is because of these people that we will be back! Warm, personable and fun...did I mention the food? The meals we had were so delicious...the Chef is from Peru! Interesting food! I had the Poorman steak, huge portion, unable to finish... More

We were staying at the Inn at Oyster Point and were tired and looking for a convenient place to eat. The restaurant far exceeded our expectations. We we first arrived it was very quiet, but filled rather quickly. Nonetheless, the service was simply excellent. Oh yes, and food was quite good as well. There is a very nice outdoor eating... More
